The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Recite in the name of your Lord who created - (1) Createth man from a clot. (2) Read, and your Lord only is the Most Beneficent, (3) Who hath taught mankind by the pen (4) Taught man what he knew not. (5) Nay, surely man transgresses; (6) Because he sees himself self-sufficient. (7) Indeed towards your Lord only is the return. (8) Hast thou seen him who dissuadeth (9) a servant (of Allah) when he prays? (10) Have you seen if he is upon guidance (11) or enjoins true piety? (12) What will happen if the prohibiting rejects the Truth and turns away from it!? (13) Does he not know that Allah sees? (14) And yet indeed if he does not desist We shall drag him by the forelock, (15) The lying, sinful forelock - (16) So, let him call upon his way! (17) We will call the guards of Hell (to deal with him)! (18) No indeed! Do not obey him, but prostrate yourself and come closer to God. ۩ (19)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
